While translating an ever-classic epic novel, it is very important to keep in mind the importance of each character, the language and the flow of scenes. Sumeetha Manikandan gave us the perfect blend of all these in her book. Starting from the cover to the footnotes, this book, being the second in series, did not fail to impress me.
